My background


I was born in London, UK, and studied physics at Nottingham then Bristol universities. After my MSc and PhD I continued in materials science research at Bristol for about 10 years.


In 1986 I moved to Italy, where I worked as a science journalist for an international science journal, and as a science writer/editor and translator for a newly established UN science centre in Trieste.


Trieste is known locally as "Science City" for its wealth of scientific activity and range of institutions. I stayed in Italy until 2002.


I now live in Cardiff, capital of Wales, and work freelance as a science editor and translator for clients including researchers at universities in Italy and France.


My interests include bridge, languages, poetry, sports, swimming (wild), travel.
